Why do we like the music we like? Why does one track get out toes tapping and another is like fingernails scraping down a chalkboard? The Science Museum in the UK decided to try to figure it out. Here’s more on the experiment from the UK Science Museum:
The #MyBrainTunes experiment, that ran at the Science Museum from February – March 2020, used the latest technology to monitor human brainwaves while participants listened to music, to predict how much they liked a particular song…. During the Live Science residency, we introduced the experiment to visitors. If they decided to participate, within a few minutes they were listening to and rating our selected songs. John Lennon or Adele? Queen or Coldplay? ….Afterwards, we shared graphs with the participants that illustrated their neural activity during different songs and showing how their brains responded to the songs that they liked versus the songs that they didn’t like.
